Eagles Add OL

Adam Caplan of Scout.com is reporting that the Eagles have signed Chris Patrick off the Practice Squad to take the roster spot of Max Jean-Gilles, who was injured in the Thanksgiving win over Arizona.


Patrick played LT at Nebraska. He didn't show the kind of athletic ability needed for playing on the edge, but he was a quality player. My big concern with Patrick as a prospect was his ability to handle athletic edge rushers. He has a chance to be an effective G in the NFL. The Eagles love to take guys who played OT, especially LT, and move them to C and G.

Who did we promote to our full roster?

Isn't there a need for some insurance at RB over the need for another OL behind Justice, McGlyyn, King and Gibson?
